2000 Volvo V40 4dr Wagon

Review

Three months after purchase, went to use car and found it had no power. Had Volvo Roadside tow it to dealer. Battery recharged. Now after 14 additional months, same problem. Dealer service replaced battery; found a bad cell. Also, told me brake pads soon need replacing, mileage now at 11,500 miles, $135;is typical to replace at 15,000! Called Volvo Consumer hotline. Indeed, the materials used in the brake pads wear quickly. No warranty coverage. I rate this most poorly with regard for the reputation the Volvo name seems to promote.

Suggested Improvements

Get brake pad performance/durability in line with other auto makers. 15,000 mile replacement, indeed!
